Felting is mostly a hobby here in the U.S., but it’s a home building necessity for families in Mongolia.
That’s where a Virginia artist is headed taking her passion for felt to help make a difference for women.
Lisa Jacenich, owner of Artful Gifts in Monterey, uses locally sheered wool, but also a number of simple mechanized machines that will help the Mongolian women to increase their efficiency and family incomes.
You can help Lisa fund her trip by donating — in the next 7 hours — to her KickStarter campaign here.
